Designing Your Path to Healing
Recognizing and embracing your uniqueness is the first step to living a happier and healthier life. Feel relaxed knowing that healthy does not come with a strict set of guidelines we all must live by. There is NO one size fits all. We are all unique and the path we take to heal our bodies will look very different. The only requirement is to be open to exploring what works best for you. Dare to be different as you embark upon your own journey of healing.
One of the most powerful things you can do, in the pursuit of optimal wellness, is to take ownership of your health. Far too often, we relinquish the power to heal our bodies to our doctors and develop a hands-off approach. If achieving optimal health is your desire, then you must make a choice to purposefully participate in your path to healing. This simply means shifting from a patient mindset to a mindset that encourages consistent collaboration between you and your doctor. When you become a partner in your journey of healing, you feel deeply empowered. This feeling of empowerment leads to a strong sense of self-efficacy, deliberate self-care, and the full acknowledgment that you are in charge of your health.
Optimal wellness is deeper than just being "free" from illness. It is a lifestyle, not a goal we are all seeking to reach. Attaining true wellness is really a transformative process that involves viewing your health more holistically. Rather than focusing on one aspect of health, such as exercise, a holistic view allows you to focus on every part of your mental, physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. This approach to life sets the stage for healing to occur.
